When adding code to the OnValidate trigger on a page, why is the trigger getting executed twice?

Hello! I am running into an issue that I hope someone can help me with. I am using NAV 2016. In my List page, I have added some code to validate that two fields match. If they do not match, the code gives the user a message letting them know that the two fields must match.

It is working fine accept that the message box pops up twice. The first time it opens, I select OK, and then it opens up a second time.

Here is the code:

Batch - OnValidate()
IF "Order Lines" <> "Lines Shipped" THEN BEGIN
MESSAGE('The number of Order Lines must Match the number of Lines Shipped');
"Ready for Batch" := FALSE;

Is there a way to make the code only run once?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi logger!

    When I changed the code to use the Error function, I no longer needed the rest of the code. It automatically unchecked the box.

    to answer your question, I was using it with my original code to show that the checkbox was unchecked.
